The first step of any research is: identify your topic.
Read extensively about your topic, trying to understand the position of different scholars in that specific discourse, as well as the main aspects discussed. Your paper should cite at least 7 sources (primary and secondary) which will show the depth of your research.
Take notes while you view the primary and secondary sources included in your bibliography. to describe the status of previous scholarship on your topic.
Develop your own thesis. Considered the position of other writers, what is your own position? Do you agree/disagree with the interpretation of some of them? Can you contribute to a certain discussion by adding arguments that could reinforce another scholars’ perspective? Or, on the contrary, do you disagree with a scholar’s theory? What aspects have been underestimated by existing discourses?
Once you have developed your thesis, you must put it to the test. Take a distance and ask yourself: WHY is your thesis convincing and HOW does your argument work?
